Somebody Always Brings Pie

We haven’t really been covering the News Corp. / News of the World scandal because I want to be invited on to Fox News again (j/k). Whether or not Rupert Murdoch or his company broke various U.K. laws is not something we’ve looked at in depth.

And we’ll not look at it in depth here. Instead, we’re just going to show you a video of a man being hit with a pie.

Because you never know when your client might be in this situation…

That person you see hitting the pie thrower is Rupert Murdoch’s wife, Wendi Deng Murdoch.

This is why you should always be seated next to your lawyer when giving testimony before a governmental body. For $1,000 an hour, your counsel should be able to take that hit for you.

UPDATE: Our sister site, Dealbreaker, has a more detailed analysis of the pugilistic skills of Murdoch’s wife. Meanwhile, the Village Voice grabs some real-time tweets from the alleged pie-thrower’s ex-girlfriend.

I guess what I’m trying to say is: the scandal of a major news organization potentially hacking into the cell phone of a dead girl to get a scoop just got interesting.
